Schools facing smaller budget

Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County School
District general operating budget
that has been proposed for next
year is down more than $1.4
million to $24.3 million.
The district is not raising
the tax rate to compensate for
reduced revenues, although it is
taking advantage of the ability to
levy a quarter-mill of its total tax
rate for critical operating needs.
The $224,757 the quarter-mill
will raise has been earmarked
for teacher and staff bonuses,
although that offer has not been
accepted as.a settlement to an
ongoing contract dispute.
To offset the additional
quarter-mill levy, the millage
levied locally for capital
improvements has been reduced
by an equal amount, a move that
was opposed by only one board
member, David Smith.
The millage levy for critical
operating needs was allowed by
the state for one year only, unless
school districts want to let voters
decide whether or not toilet the
levy to stand in future years.
Overall, district's property
tax village rate is tentatively
set at 7.688 mills, most of which
the district is required to levy
in order to receive full state
funding. By comparison, local
sources of funding, including
property taxes and fees, bring
in $6.3 million. State sources
account for nearly $17.4 million
of the general fund.
..The- money budgeted for
appropriations, plus the $1.29
million fund balance brings
the total general fund to $25.6
Much of that-$19.3 million--
is dedicated to salaries' and
benefits, funding for which is
down $2.2 million from the
current budget year. Money for
purchased services has increased
to $1.77 million. Also up-17
percent-is the budget for energy,

and the budget proposed for
supplies, has almost doubled to
$1.06 million.
Capital outlay expenditures
from the general fund are down
slightly to 207,505, while other
personnel costs are up from $649,
211 to almost $800,000.
The fund for public education
capital outlay is $831,285. The
primary cost here is a roof
replacement project that has been
added. The board has more than
$326,000 in deferred revenue
in this fund that was to be used
for construction at Southside
Elementary. There isn't enough
money to begin that project, but
according to Finance Director
Julee Tinsler, the money must be
spent or it will be lost.
Smith objected since much
of the money would be spent

reroofing the district offices,
which he said at more than 1,200
square feet per employee is
too large for its current use. He
wanted to see the money used at
Southside, but that project has.
been put off for the time being.
The other major expenditure
in this.fund is the $172,467 set
aside for fire alarm replacement.
According to Tinsler, this money,
plus another $144,000 in the local
capital improvement fund, will
be used to begin the very costly
replacement ofthe fire alarm
system in the district, beginning
with the high school.
There is still nearly
$280,000 set aside for building
replacement at Southside. Other
capital projects include ADA

Bradford school district

preparing plans for improvement

Telegraph Editor

A lot of plans and paths' to
school improvement have been
tossed at school districts, and
they are finally being brought
under the umbrella of a single
action plan.
According to Carol Clyatt,
Bradford director of school
improvement and accountability
said the state is bringing a
number of pieces of the school
improvement puzzle together.
This year, schools have had to
write their own action plans, and
it's a much more detailed plan
in the past containing steps that
will be taken to achieve progress
to meet state standards.
One of the components of
the action plan, for example,
is the stated differentiated
accountability plan for schools
that are struggling with making
adequate yearly progress. AYP
standards consist of targets
schools are expected to meet.
Six of the county's public
schools fall into some corrective
category of the plan based
on the number of years they
have not made adequate yearly
progress. In order to move out of
differentiated accountability, a
school must make adequate yearly
progress for two consecutive
years. Hampton Elementary falls
into the Prevent I category, which
allows for the school to implement
interventions including focused
support and interventions for
subgroups of students not
making AYP. While the school
implements the interventions, the'
district monitors this process.
Starke and Southside
Elementary and Lawtey
Community School fall into
a more heavily monitored
category known as Correct I.
Here the school district directs
the interventions that the school
is to implement to improve AYP
Bradford Middle School and
Bradford High School are in an
even- more .hea iL_ .mcoqitored
category known as. Correc.i
II. Here -thie- disiri& direct
interventions and the state steps
in to help monitor progress.
Monitoring and documenting
performance in order to respond
to deficiencies with targeted
action-the basic philosophy
of the state's. Response to
Intervention plan-is where
everything has been headed,
Clyatt said. Related is the required
Continuous Improvement Model,
a plan known locally as EXCEL,
which provides a spiraling
system of instruction, assessment
andsremediation or enrichment
activities based on testing data.
According to Assistant
Superintendent Lisa Prevatt,
Response to Intervention is the

a similar process of identifying
behavior issues and then
intervening with instruction on
positive behaviors that students
may not be receiving elsewhere.
It is believed a traditional
reactive approach to disciplinary
problems can often do more to

and Positive Behavior Support
is designed to correct that by

and teaching to correct negative
SA communitywide meeting on
Positive Behavior Support will
take place Thursday, Aug. 6, at 7
p.m. at the school board offices,
501 W. Washington St. in Starke.
Certain components have
of each program have been
implemented at various schools,
but the district's goal is going to
be to support full implementation
of these improvement models at
every school. These are research-
based programs, Prevatt said,
and that's what is driving these
Clyatt discussed school grade
data with the board. Some
schools only made adequate
yearly progress by a provision
that overlooks failure to meet
an AYP standard if significant
improvement was measured in
the subgroup of students-say
" low-income students.
For example, even if a school
misses a performance target
such as having 40 percent of
low-income students showing
improvement in a subject area,
the school can still meet AYP if it
manages to lower the percentage
of students who didn't meet that
goal by a significant amount.
This flexibility is good since
those performance targets are
rising again next year.
Bradford remains a,C-level
district without much overall
improvement, although successes
have been measured at different
schools, grade levels and subject
. areas Clatt showed how the
pcrliorTance' t Lt.f ct-
- -->!i I, -r j . r, , 1 , , .
could affect a school's overall
assessment. Strategies to identify
and improve performance
of this lowest' quartile will
be emphasized, as well as
stressing reading and writing

Building on the literacy model
provided by the Florida Reading
Initiative, students at the high
school will be exposed to an
intensified version this year.
Prevatt said in each course,
students will spend time every
day reading content related that
course, whether it be art, math,
science or history, and then they
will be asked to respond in some
way to what they've read-by
answering questions, writing,
It is believed that one of the
reasons reading performance
drops so much at higher grade
levels is because the FCAT
test begins focusing on more
expository forms of writing.
Teaching students how to read
and absorb the information
presented in what they've read
could be key to raise the number
of students reading at grade level
at the high school.
The reading strategy, which
will also be used at the middle
school level, comes from
Marybeth LaPointe, an education
consultant who has worked
with a number of high schools,
including Union County High,
which went from a D to a B this
past school year.
Superintendent Beth Moore is
encouraging school staff to shoot
for the stars with Aiming for an
A. LaPointe is one consultant
who has been brought in to help
build A schools in. Bradford
County. Another is Paula Forsyth,
who has extensive background
on classroom monitoring and
walkthroughs and can help make
sure teaching methods contained
in the improvement, plans are
being employed effectively.
Student, engagement in the
learning process, team building
and leadership skills, and raising
expectation levels are among the
other areas of focus.
Schools will . also be
incorporating the standards
of the state's Next Generation
Strategic Plan, the goal of which
is to better prepare students for
globally competitive workforce
y. making them more college and
iareor rea' tld�Th1 . plan includes
its own set of benchmarks for

rates and increasing the number
of students who enroll in

The city of Lawlyey Volunteer
Fire Department has been at
work for a while on additional
square footage for its equipment
and its members.
Although it is still under
construction. I u\ tey Fire Chief
Mike Brown said the new hay

and bathroom lor firefighters.
While Law\\cyts 10 members
are a volunteerr force. Brown said
if the county were to establish
paid departments, the space
would already\ exist to house a
crew' a Station 5.

There will even be a joint
exercise room that can he shared
with the EMS crew already
housed in the older building in
quarters built also for them by
the fire department.
The new living area has yet to
be completed; however, and there
are other things that need to be
accomplished, such as insulation
and driveway paving.
The department has also
acquired a brush truck that can
also be housed in the existing
station. It's -a 2004 Ford 550
capable of transporting 450
gallons of water and is one
of several purchased from
Hillsborough County. The others
went to the fire departments at
New River, Brooker and Heilbron
Springs. Brown said.
Speaking of Heilbron Springs,
Brown credited the chief of that
department. Terry McCarthy.
with locating the trucks for the
county 's \well as the doors on
the IawtCy D)epartment's new

free. Brown said McCarthy did
manage to get the doors donated
to th ILaw ley department so they.
did not add too the cost of the

construction project.
Again giving credit where it
is due, Brown said community
donations have made construction
at the fire department possible,
although more will be needed to
sec the project through to the end.
The fire department has used its
own labor and hired some local
contractors to get the work done.
In addition to McCarthy and
financial donors, Brown thanked
Henry Hodges. Jackson Building
Supply and John Crawford.
Anyone wishing to donate to
further the construction priojct.
can make a check out to the
department and drop it off or
mail it to lawtey City Hall.
"We're building it for the

BC tax roster tells broad story

In 2008 Bradford County
took in $16,281,551 in property,
Personal and railroad taxes,
S "Personal property" is
-"defined as major equipment
Sand improvements. Although
Personal property may be listed
Sas a "parcel" it isn't a "parcel of
Island " but could be something
like a dock or a tractor,
. whether used by a business or
t a resident.
SBradford CountyTax Director
STheresa Phillips said there are
S14,625 real estate parcels on
the Bradford County tax rolls,
and 1,620 parcels of personal
SWhen property owners-fail to
pay their taxes; the tax collector
sends reminders, and eventually
advertises their names and tax
amounts in the newspaper.
' Shortly thereafter, others may
purchase tax certificates on still
unpaid amounts at an auction.
When you buy a certificate
for someone else's unpaid
taxes, they must repay you,
with interest, or after a certain
period you may purchase their
Island or personal item.
.At this .year's tax auction,
1,221 of 1.798 or so property
Sand personal property
Scertiticates were, sold,
i , reepresenting about $412,000 in,
,i tax. arrears.A remaining 577
.-. unsold certificates were passed
along to the county, possibly
. for sale if unpaid taxes aren't

eventually produced.
About half of that total
amount auctioned will get paid
within a year, Phillips said and
most of the rest will be paid
over time. Very little property
is actually sold by the county
for non-payment of taxes, but
it does happen.
The number of lapsed
tax accounts that become
certificates has gone up every
year, even during the boom
years, Phillips said. However,
last year it jumped by about
200 parcels in arrears, almost
18 percent.
Some property owners
"forget" or ignore their bill,
Phillips added, knowing they
will have up to two years to
pay, even if the tax amount gets
,bigger as they wait.
One community lender told
of a woman who hadn't paid her
taxes because she was under
the impression she didn't have
to pay property taxes on land
she inherited from her father.
Besides,the lendersaid,she'd
lost all her money.gambling.
"Sometimes they just don't
have the money," Phillips said.
A study of the tax certificate
list found that the total volume
of land in tax arrears accounts
for about three to four percent
of the county's total land mass.
The list includes the names
of more- and less-well-off
residents in the community:
bankers, real estate dealers,
doctors, elected - officials,
churches, bricklayers, farmers,

retired people-even people
who are deceased.
An Excel spreadsheet was
used to sort the tax certificate
data and divide proper[\
owners by various categories.
Among the subsets were
Bradford municipal locations.
"other nearby towns" and other
divisions, like "out of state."
The largest number of
property owners of any subset
had Starke addresses. That
would be expected, since
it's also the county seat and
population center.
Lawtey property owners
made up the second highest
number of cases of tax
Property owners residing in
other parts of Florida were in
third place at nine percent of
all names on the list, followed
closely by residents with
Jacksonville addresses.
Someone other than the
property owner received the
mail-and possibly handled
business matters-for about
nine percent of all property
owners on the certificate
Deceased taxpayers become
a special category in the tax
office. About five percent of
all property owners on the
certificate list had passed on,
sometimes without getting their
affairs in order.
Often, a number of heirs
inherit the deceased's property,
or several peoplejointly buy the
property. On the tax rolls, these

propcrt\ o\\ners are listed with
one person's name followed hs
"et al".
Phillips said that in cases of
heirs one person ma\ own the
parcel only after all the other
heirs ha\e signed away their
rights. If just one heir refuses to
sign. the process gets dragged
out: but it often falls to one
person to continue to pay the
taxes. If he or she begins to
balk, the property can end up
on the certificate list.
About 37 percent of all
properties in arrears were held
by owners with more than one
One of the most revealing
findings in the numbers was
a comparison of how many
property owners in tax arrears
Owned very small amounts of
land and how many owned
larger spreads.
The . smallest holding in
arrears was .02 acres; the
largest was 169.92 acres. The
tax records show that 409
property owners holding less
than two acres comprised eight
percent of the total acreage in
An additional 391 cases

made up 29 percent of total
There were 133 property
owners on the tax certificate
roster who held between 10 and

percent of all Bradford acreage

UCHS lost a bit of history when oak trees were taken down...

Times Staff Writer

On Monday, March 9,
students and teachers at Union
County High School were
shocked to return to school
after the weekend to find their
school courtyard destroyed.
What remained was a large
amount of debris surrounding
two useless stumps where there
once stood enormous oak trees
in excess of 60 feet tall.
The incidenttookplaceshortly
after a well-loved teacher had
fallen and broken her hip on
a sidewalk somewhere on the
-school grounds. The decision
by the superintendent's office
to remove the trees seems to
imply that the accident was
caused by the trees.
Exactly why the trees were
cut down and removed hasn't
been made clear, but reports
from the . superintendent's
office included an email sent
to science teacher Sam Long
that reads, "Mr. ICarltonl Faulk
asked me to reply to your email
to him concerning the trees.
People have tripped over the
roots that were protruding so
they were removed for safety
reasons. The leaves also caused
roof problems. In other areas
of the school, tree roots have
caused sidewalks to buckle.
Thanks for \our concern."
All of the sidewalks
surrounding and leading t6
the courtyard are well above
ground level and show no signs
of buckling. There are also no
signs of protruding roots from
the. trees. What was found was
a large gouge.in the courtyard's
sidewalk that was caused by
the equipment used to remove
the trees.
With the trees completely
removed from the courtyard,
no obvious roof damage can be
seen, either, but the likelihood
that leaves and fallen acorns had
cluttered eaves is a probability.
It is also probable that regular
trimming and maintenance
should have kept this to a

and obtained"by the Times,
back in 1996, new' buildings
were added to the high school
which included a construction
class wing, business wing, a
physical education building
and a drafting and home
economics wing. Those new
buildings appear to be quite
purposely constructed around
two large oak trees-possibly
thought to enhance the school's
drainage, systemi--and creating
the school's courtyard. .
In the time of, the drawing,
one oak stood at 58 feet and the
other at 60,
Besides, providing shade and
beauty, a mature oak tree can
consume nearly 500 gallons
of water aAveek from the
ground. According to the U.S.
"Geological Survey, a large oak
tree can transpire as. much as
40,000 gallons of water a year.
How the destruction of these
trees-leaving nothing more
than ground soil-will affect
the school's drainage system,
isn't yet clear.
The sprawling oaks provided
a large amount of shade in the
courtyard and to the buildings
surrounding them. Sidewalks
led to several picnic tables
and a pathway was created by
a number of purple and gold
painted stepping stones that
were shaped like Tiger paws,
the school mascot. Besides an
area that was once used as a
gathering -place for students,
teachers would sometimes
allow students to use the area to
sit outdoors while doing their
reading and studying.
What remains now is a
sun-beaten, hollow courtyard
where grass is now attempting
to grow.
Soon after the trees were cut
down, The Times was contacted,
by a group of students who
described feeling '.cheated
and were planning a 'protest.
Eventually, these students were
constructively -redirected by
concerned teachers and' the
*students decided to instead
protest in silence by refusing
to walk through the barren
courtyard for the remainder of
the school year.
One positive thing that came
out of this was that students
initiated classroom discussions.
For example, Long said students
who had once just filled the

seats in the classroom suddenly
had something to say.
"Any time a topic starts a
classroom discussion,it's a good
thing." said Long. "We had kids
that would sit in'the classroom

a great

fact that the weekend chopping
took away the opportunity
for teachers to at least show
students how to count the rings
of a tree.
Questions arose such as,
"Why was this kept quiet?
Was this done without a public
meeting for citizen input? Were
there not other alternatives
before hastily destroying a
piece of the school's history?"
Further, the history of the
trees'could have been preserved
by replanting them somewhere
else in Union County,especially
following a time when the state
has lost so many trees due to
recent hurricanes.
Several students brought up
different areas of the campus,
pointing out other hazards that
could cause people to trip and
fall or otherwise be injured
and wondered why no one was
worried about fixing them, but

the students have planted a
beautiful flower garden.

positive for students, and instill
a sense of pride in their school
by allowing them to take part in
the beautification and safety of

The loss of the trees might
seem a little more plausible if
school board members had a
planned use for the courtyard
area and had shared that with
the students and teachers. This

It is the hope of Long and
several students that perhaps,

come. What would be great,
Long said, is that students and

Emory Beck has been watching this pineapple grow
for the last six months. Last Thursday, he cut if. He's-
expecting as many as seven fresh pineapples from his
bushes by the end of the year.

KH's Beck

expects bumper

pineapple crop

Monitor Editor

Keystone Heights resident
Emory Beck grows pineapples.
He has a plant in each of the
large pots that sit in two rows
along one side of his lawn.
He gets two or three
pineapples every year. That is,
until this year, when he expects
six pineapples and maybe seven
by the end of the year.
His pineapples are'big--and
look just.,like.the.ones you see
in the supermarket, except they
are still green aid still on the
bush. He said his pineapples
are as tasty as store bought
pineapples, too; if not more so.
Beck started the hobby with
eight pineapples he brought
back from a trip to Hawaii in
the 1970s. He cut the tops. off
the fruits and planted them.
They grew long, exploratory
stems, he called "red suckers"
and eventually those turned
into new plants.
Occasionally he had no
pineapples on his bushes and
his wife brought one home
from the supermarket. He cut
the tops off those and they also
grew.,By now, he has between
20 and 30 pineapple plants.
This year, Beck is especially
excited about one fruit he has
been watching mature and
ripen for the last six months.
The pineapple has seven heads
on it, he said. Last week, he cut
it off the bush.
The head or crown of the
pineapple is the spiny topknot
Sthe rest of us cut off and toss
in the trash. Beck will plant all

seven of the topknots on his
prize pineapple and will get
seven new plants.
Eventually, they too will
produce pineapples.
During the winter, Beck
leaves the plants out in the
yard, but covers them up with
a heavy cloth. He puts a small
heater underneath, and sets
it to come on when the air
temperaturereaches freezing.
Beck said anybody can grow
pineapples. All you need is a
pineapple with. atopknot, and a
cla) p'' t ith some'good soil in
it. He also adds Miracle Grow
once a month. That and some
patient waiting is all that's
required, he said.

Members of 631st leave with well wishes, thanks

Telegraph Staff Writer
A large crowd of family,
well-wishers and government
officials, including Gov.
Charlie Crist, . packed the
family life center at Starke's
Madison Street Baptist Church
for a July 27 deployment
ceremony for the Florida
National Guard's 631s'
Maintenance Company,
prompting Florida's adjutant
general, Maj. Gen. Douglas
Burnett, to heap high praise on
the community.
"I've done many of these
since I've been the adjutant
general," Burnett said. "I can
tell you, Starke, Florida, is at
the very top of those cities that
support the National Guard.
You deserve a round of
The largest round, of
applause, though, was saved
for those men and women of
the 631s", which is based in
Starke. The company left July
28 for Fort McCoy, Wis., for
preparatory training and will
later go to Iraq to support
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Willie Wright, a member of
the 631", admitted to being
overwhelmed by seeing such a
turnout at the church.
"It touches my heart to know
that we have this much
support," he said.
Company member Danny
Nugent, who is also a Starke
city commissioner, said such
support lets him know that his
loved ones will be in good
hands during his absence.
"It's like a family
environment," Nugent said.
"We support each other."
The, ceremony's keynote
speaker was Crist, who said
.such support is the most
important thing the members
of the 631"' can receive during
this time.
"Your love, your caring,
your concern and compassion
will stay with them and give
them strength," Crist said.
However, the governor
emphasized that the members
of the 631"' have more than just
family and friends standing
behind them.
"With your deployment to
Iraq, know this: All of Florida
stands with you," Crist said.
"All of America stands with
you. You are true heroes and

Crist said such support

never be alone despite being
overseas and so far from those
who love them.
"When these young men and
women leave us, they don't
really leave us," Crist said.
"Not at all. We're there with
them every step of the way."
Capt.. Maria Garcia, the
commander of the 631"', told
the crowd she and the rest of
the company considered it a
privilege to go overseas and
help "plant the seed of
democracy in the country of
Iraq." She added it was an
honor for her to lead the
company-a company that is
ready to take on the mission at
"Let me ensure you that they

Wilson said he knew this time
would come eventually. He is
looking forward to it.
"I'm just proud of what
we're doing," he said. "We
know it's got a good purpose."
Wright, a 13-year member
of the Guard, said he thinks of
leaving his family and friends
behind, as well as his full-time
job with the Department of
Corrections, but added he is
not stressing over the situation.

Williams honored to be church's first full-time pastor

Keystone Presbyterian

of the community for 20 years
come October, but the church
had never had a full-time
That changed in late May
when Brad Williams was
welcomed with open arms and
hugs. That type of friendliness
and care, which was evident
before he accepted the
position, helped seal the deal
when Williams and his family
made the move from Jackson,
Miss., to Keystone.
"When I came for my
interview, I honestly felt like-
and I told the committee this-
I was sitting down with friends
just talking," Williams said. "It
didn't seem like an interview
at all. It really was very loving
and warm. That's the real
strength of this church."
Williams was serving as
director of youth at Trinity
Presbyterian Church in
Jackson while attending
Reformed . Theological
Seminary. He was looking for
a position as a senior pastor.
He learned of the position at

in had a Wal-Mart, a Target
and just about any restaurant
one could think of, he said. -
To then move to Keystone
and discover none of that was
a bit of a shock, Williams said,
but his family does not mind.
"The way we have been
embraced by the people has
made up for any lack in other
areas," he said.

When Williams learned of
the history of. the church and
the work Teague had done, it
was almost hard to believe he
was in the running to become
the church's first full-time

the Jacksonville Airport after

about how humbled he was to
be a top candidate'and to be
considered for the big move
the church was making.

the ministry," he said.
What followed was what
Williams described as a
domino effect. He returned
home to Dothan following the
discipleship program. The
youth pastor at First
Presbyterian Church in Dothan
left his position a couple of
days after Williams' return. He
was asked if he would
volunteer with the youth. He
"I kind of felt at that point 1

man," Williams said. "In light
of my own struggles, I just
thought if God could ever use
me .Jo help someone avoid
some of the major issues I
faced in life, theh I wanted to
do that."
That began in 2000. From
the church in Dothan,
Williams moved to Evergreen
Presbyterian Church in
Tennessee and then to Trinity
in Jacksqn.
Being a senior pastor is a bit
different in that now the buck
stops with him, so to speak,
Williams said. Now, instead of

.just focusing on youth, he said
he is responsible for entire
Sure, it was daunting to take
the pulpit for the first time as a
senior pastor, Williams said,
but it was what he has been
working toward and what he
has been led to.
"It has been a good change,"
he said. "I tell you, it's right. I
was ready for it, no doubt
about that."
Now that he is settling in-
his first service was May 24-
Williams said he would like to
see Keystone Presbyterian
Church eventually start a
prison ministry and perhaps a
'ministry that serves children in
some capacity, such as
specifically targeting orphans.
More than anything, though,
he wants the church to be a
place where "people can come
in and be loved."
When not putting in hours at
the church, Williams is putting
in hours at home. He has
hobbies such as reading,

Reader says
christians don't
realize reality
Dear Editor:
I am quite sure, as Rosha
Smith says, that Mitchell
Brown is a good Christian
man. I did not dispute that.
But being a good Christian
man does not make you right
when you make statements that
are not backed up by facts.
If, as Christians insist, God
created men and women, then
yes. he did make Adam and
Eve and Adam and Steve. But
Christians, as always, deny
science when it does not agree
with their beliefs.
Christians take the attitude
that the Bible, which was
written by people who know
nothing about the human body,
viruses, plagues, etc., much
less about nature in general
(lightning, earthquakes, etc.),
says such and such so it must
be true. So they stick their
heads in their Bible and don't
want to face the ugly truth that
science is true.
Bible writers know nothing
about DNA, genes,
chromosomes, cells or
anything else about the human
body. They had no idea that
drinking to excess, smoking,
using drugs or other things

aesthetics & o-ali


D renda Pappas

could result in deformities; in
childbirth for example.
Because Christians don't
,want science to be right, they
never ruminate about the body
at all. Such as why did the
Creator endow us with an
appendix which is of
absolutely no use, but can kill
you if it bursts? Why were our
eyes made upside down and
backward? Why do we have
the remnant of a tail bone that
is totally useless? It's best not
to question such things!
Yet, Christians will take
medicine when they are ill,
have cancers removed, have
hip and knee replacements,
drive automobiles, and on and
on-all developed by science,
not the bible.
I don't try to change
anyone's faith. But faith
clashes with reality constantly
and Christians just don't want
to face reality.

Who says work isn't fun? A smiling Emilie Meng (far left), pictured with two other
American Legion Auxiliary Girls State participants, drafts a plan on the
Department of Corrections' responsibilities in helping out in a given mock disaster
(flooding on the east coast). M ng served as the head of the Department of
Corrections during the insight-into-government activity.

Continued from page 2B

The stated purpose of Girls
State is to encourage students'
participation in the democratic
process when they are of age
by "affording them the
opportunity to live together as
self-governing citizens and
informing them of the duties,
privileges, rights and
responsibilities of American
citizenship." In terms of
making that statement a
reality, the 300 participants are
divided into "cities" of 25
each. Each city has an informal
election for a mayor.
Each participant has a
roommate. The two roommates
are members of different
political parties, ' either
Federalist or Nationalist.
Elections are held on various
positions within state
government designed to give
participants knowledge on a
how a two-party system works.
A pep rally coincided with
the elections, which was a fun
event, Meng said.
"We got to make T-shirts
and.be creative," she said.

devotes his free time to his

wife, Rachel, and four
children, who range in age
from 1 to 5.
"For now, my wife stays at

"My daddy was happy when
I told him that," she said. Her
father is a correctional officer.
Besides, learning the ins and
outs of the political process
, and acting out parliamentary
procedure, Meng enjoyed
being part of a university
atmosphere. Sitting in a lecture
jlall on the FSU campus that
comfortably seated all 300
Girls State participants and
Girls State staff, but still had
empty seats remaining, was
impressive, she said.
"It was a really neat
experience getting to see what
college students actually do at
the university," Meng said.
Meng also' had 'high praise
for the food made available to
the Girls State participants, but
more than anything, she said
she enjoyed the camaraderie
the most during her time in
Tallahassee. She still keeps in
contact with fo4r people she
met and became close to at
Girls State and was able to
meet people not only from
other parts of Florida, but who
were of different ethnic

"It was a really good
experience getting to know all
the girls," Meng said.
Girls State sessions are held
throughout the country with
approximately 20,000 rising
high school seniors taking part
each year. Meng was selected
after interviewing with
members of the auxiliary of
American Legion' Post 56.
Stated qualifications for those
selected include an interest in
government, leadership ability,
good character and honesty,
scholastic standing,
cooperativeness, community
participation and service.
Meng had an interest in
government. Now, she has a
better understanding of it.
"It was really good learning
about all of it and knowing
what goes on because so many
people have no idea how
government works," she said.

Having said that, Meng
would definitely encourage
anybody who is selected by an
American Legion auxiliary to
attend the annual event.
"I'm definitely glad I went,"
she said. "It was different from
what I expected. It was a lot
better than what I expected."

"We kind of get a chuckle
out of that because we love it.,
here. We absolutely love it
here," Williams said. "I just

"I'm just going to do what
I'm supposed to do as far as
what they've trained me for,
do the mission and come back
home and be with my family,"
Wright said.
Jeremy Rhoden, a 2000

soldiers are going through. He

a member of the 356'h Combat
Support Company out of Lake
Rhoden said this would be
the most hectic time of the
deployment since no one really
knows what he or she is
getting into. It will become
easier for the 631s members
once they are actually overseas
and performing their mission.
In fact, his time overseas went
really fast, Rhoden said.
"I had a good time," he said.
"I actually enjoyed it. If it

wasn't for my family, I'd go
with these guys."
Nugent, a 13-year member
of the Guard, and everyone
else who is making the trip,
.though, have to leave their
families behind. Those
families are not truly left alone
thanks to the 631s1
Maintenance Company's
family readiness group,
coordinated by Mindy Malone
along with Shannon Bell. The
group exists to put care
packages together and take
care of any maintenance issues
as well as boosting morale.
Burnett, during the
ceremony, told' the families
preqent;if something .broke and
needed fixing, they should
contact the family readiness
group. He then added they
could call him as well.
"I'll get there with my
toolbox," Burnett said. "I'm
sure I can muster, enough
Guardsmen' t6 come help fix
the problem." ,
Fixing things happens to be
what the 631 ' Maintenance
Company is all about. The
company, though it has been
training in areas such as crowd
control and basic urban
operations in preparation for
deployment, specializes in
ma.tengg#ce of wheeled
vehicles, , weapons,
communications equipment
and night-vision gear.

Nugent said it is a good
feeling to help soldiers in other
units successfully perform
their tasks.
"When they've completed
their mission and have done
their job, we have a sense of
pride because we helped them
accomplish it," he said.
In light of Crist's closing
remarks, the efforts of the
members of the 631 "
Maintenance Company

million Floridians, I thank
you," Crist said. "That's the
most important thing I can say
to you. Thank you. We
appreciate you. We honor you.
You are true heroes. God bless
each and every one of you."
Garcia, too, thanked the
company members in. her

Ray Daugherty Land Surveyor, Inc.

Celebrating our 17th Anniversary

1992- 2009
I knew early in my life that I would be working in a
career with numbers. My high school counselor in.
1972 told me I should go into the banking industry
because I was so strong in math. Well, little did I know
e that I would get a job working with math but it would
, not be in banking but in land surveying.
S I was out of school for a few months before graduation '
and was looking for a job when a friend of mine, who
was working in Clewiston, told me he heard some men
S talking about an opening with a land surveyor. I went
r to Clewiston and was hired as a rodman. 1 worked
S there for a few months before returning to Starke to
graduate from high school. After graduation, I decided
not to return to Clewiston and worked other jobs
' before'gettirig married to my sweetheart, Sheila (Now
you know why I didn t go back to Clewiston).
In September of 1973, I began working for Merrill G. I work hands-on with each
McMillan, the local surveyor. Pat Welch was the crew syrveyingjob and visit each site
chief for Mr. McMillan and he and I worked together
until Mr. McMillan retired in 1978.
At this time, Pat started his land surveying business and asked me if I
'would work for him. Working for Pat was very enjoyable for me. I
. 1' B remember the day he told me he was promoting me to crew chief. I was
very happy to get this responsible charge position. A crew
S chief is in charge of the field crew and the field work under
Surveying the supervision of the surveyor. While in this position, I did
ism mortgage surveys for the local real estate agents, boundary
. my surveys, route surveys for Florida Power & Light and right of
passion way surveys for Bradford County (Forsyth Road, etc.) to
name just a few. I held this.position until about 1985 when I
and ait left to go to work for an engineering firm in Jacksonville.
dedicated This lasted only-about 6 months before the surveying
department was laid off.
to it 100% In a few weeks, I went to'work for Matthew Griffis Land
Surveyor in Middleburg. Knowing that I wanted to be a
licensed land surveyor, I needed some office experience.
Matthew was not in a position to bring me out of the field
into the office so I spoke with Pat about returning to work
for him to get that office experience. In 1987, I began working for Pat again and gained the office
experience I needed to take the state exam.
In 1992, I passed the state exam and was licensed as a Registered Land Surveyor in the State of
S Florida. Sheila and I began talking about opening a business of our own. It was a step of faith I took
since I knew nothing about running an office. But Sheila did. So, in September 1992, we started
Ray Daugherty Land Surveyor. Sheila ran the office during the day while me and Robert Dawkins,
my rodman/draftsman, worked in the field. It was hard for a few months until a friend of mine, Brian
Padgett, told me of some work at RGC, a mining company in Green Cove Springs. This job really
got me on my feet and I have never looked back since.
Sheila and I have two children, Rene Spriggle, who works for Cassels Christian Academy and
Jason Daugherty who works with us here in the family business as my crew chief. We have three
grandchildren: Alexis Spriggle who is 14 years old; Dalton Spriggle who is nine years old and little
Jayden Daugherty who is three years old. Sheila is the vice-president of the company and runs the
day to day operation of the office as well as drawing all the maps. She is also a Realtor with
Coldwell Banker Smith and Smith Realty.
Knowing what is going 1n in the surveying profession is very important to me. To help me
accomplish this, I am a member of the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS), the
American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), and the Florida Surveying and Mapping
Society (FSMS). I attend classroom continuing education classes which gives me the opportunity to
get clarification on a subject from an instructor which' cant get from the honie courses and the
chance to mingle and speak with other dedicated surveyors. I also receive several magazines.
Surveying is my PASSION and it is all I do. You'will find me in the office to be of service to you
anytime unless I am out inspecting a job that is in progress or one that has been completed. We
provide mortgage surveys, boundary surveys, topographic surveys, subdivision design, construction
layout, route surveys, right of way surveys and RTK GPS surveys to name just a new. Our service
areas include, but are not limited to, Bradford, Baker, Clay (Middleburg & Keystone Heights) and
Union County. We are the only land surveying company who is a memberof the North Florida
Regional Chamber of Commerce; the local chamber for this area.
in closing, I want to thank my family, my friends and this community for supporting us the last 17
years and we look forward to serving you for many more years to come. Please feel free to come by
our office anytime.

Young audience members at last week's Keystone Heights Public Library program
joined the act as Star Quality dance teacher Toni Mellone-Brunt led them through
exercises and warm-ups.

Dancers help cap summer

library program in Keystone

The Keystone Heights
Public Library ended its
summer series of kids' events
by moving its final program to
city hall.
Last Friday, the Star Quality
Dance and Cheer Center was
featured, with three student
dancers performing and much

of the audience getting in on
the act. The city hall space
was important because it could
accommodate a larger-than-
usual audience and because the
dancers are not accustomed to
dancing on the likes of the
library's carpeted floors.
Performing for the crowd

Star Quality dancers Paige Whipple, Brylee Hawkins,
and Sabrina Kerr wait to go on.

were Star Quality students
Brylee Hawkins, Sabrina Kerr
and Paige Whipple.
Teacher and dance center
owner Toni Mellone-Brunt
then led audience members in a
stretching and warm-up
session, and the youngsters
didn't hesitate to get involved.
"Be Creative at the Public
Library," was this year's
theme, said Library Director
Margaret Whipple.
Other summer programs
included preschool story fun, a
magic act, Wild Wonders
Animal Show with Mike
Rossi and Mr. C the Clown.
Whipple said that summer
programs.draw both first time
and frequent visitors to the
library, with hopes that once
there, the young audiences will,
also visit the bookshelves.
Asked how many in the
audience had attended all the
programs, two tykes wildly
waved their hands in the air.
Librarians also design
reading programs and book
displays to get kids interested.
The ultimate goal, of course, is
to keep children's new reading
skills from getting rusty over
the summer mqnths. ,,,

Spotlight on business: Warden Barry Reddish of UCI

Times Staff Writer

Iast month, Starke native
Harry Reddish returned to
his -hometown to take over
as the new warden at Union
Correctional Institution in
Reddish, who grew up on a
farm just two miles from where
he now works, graduated
from Bradford High School
in 1982, then began working
in the retail grocery business
while attending college. He
obtained his degree in business
administration from the
University of North Florida
in Jacksonville, remaining in
retail grocery for a total of 12
years before switching over to
a career in corrections.
Later, while working for
DOC, Redding also obtained
his master's degree in
educational leadership from
Florida A&M.

He.first went to work for
DOC in 1995 at Florida State
Prison as a -classification
officer. He spent nine years,
moving up.through the senior
office-supervisor ranks.
Reddish was promoted to
assistant warden at Zephyrhills
Correctional Institution in
October of 2004. He remained
there until July of 2007.
From there. Reddish was
promoted to warden at Holmes
Correctional Institution in
3Bonifa\. It w\as just over a year
before he was relocated as
\\ arden at Jackson Correctional
Institution in Marianna.
Reddish, who said he had
already made a request to
return home if the opportunity
ever arose, spent eight months
at Jackson CI before being
transferred to his warden's
position at UCI.

He and his wife, Chanda,
who was also raised in Starke,
are the parents of three boys:
Jackson. 13, Avery, 10, and
Colby, 4.
"Those moves were tough

for my family, and even for
the grandparents who weren't
able to see their grandchildren
as often as they would have
liked," said Reddish.
Now back home in Starke,
both sets Of grandparents live
less than three miles apart.
Exactly 50 years ago,
in 1959, his father, Vernon
Reddish, began his career in
corrections at the very same
prison where his son is now
the warden.
Known.then as Florida State
Prison, or "The Rock," the
name was changed to Union
Correctional Institution in the
early 70s.
Reddish relayed atory from
1971 when his father worked at
the former FSP. Four inmates
escaped from the third floor
of the maximum-security unit.
According to a newspaper
clipping obtained by Reddish,
the escapees sawed the bar
from a window and climbed
Down a rope made of clothing
and bed linens.

The four ran to a 15-foot
doublefence between two guard
towers, throwing blankets over
the fencing to avoid cutting
themselves on the barbed wire,
all the while avoiding a guard
dog. The article stated that
then Superintendent Lawrence
Dugger said the duty guards
heard the men at the fence, but
in the dense fog, couldn't see
them to shoot. The escapees
were identified as Gene
Stoneman,serving 10 years for
breaking and entering, Charles
Faucett, serving five years
for possession of a weapon
by a felon, Claude Bozeman,
serving a life sentence for
robbery and Warren Wopp,
also serving life for robbery.
Bozeman and Wopp were
captured later . the same
morning at the edge of Water
Oak Swamp. It was thought
that Stoneman and Faucett
were hiding nearby but.they
could not. be located in the
jungle-like swamp. A few days
later, however, Stoneman and

Faucett madetheirr\\ a

using a hidden ke\ in ..
the utility room.
Reddish said that war
when his mother later depe
arrived and entered and
her home, she knew insti
by the disarray that heal
something wasn't For
right. Thinking about
the escapees, she $31
backed out the door office
and got into her truck.
Putting her key in the
ignition, she looked up to see
one of the 'men pointing the
barrel of a 12-gauge shotgun at
her saying, "Don't do it."

Back inside the house, the
escapees tied her up and made
off with her truck. She was
soon able to free herself and,
since the men had cut the
phone lines, she ran outside
and flagged down a passing
motorist who took her to a
phone to call her husband.
The escapees made a mess
of her house, spilling food,
staining furniture and dragging
mud all over the place, but
took the time to shower and
change into some of Vernon's
clothes before making their
getaway. The Reddish truck
was later found in a mud hole
near Waldo, but Stoneman and
Faucett eluded authorities for a
number of years before finally
being recaptured.
Reddish said that he was
just a boy in school at the
time. Although things could
have turned out much worse
than they did, his mother was
a little, shook up. but was
otherwise fine.
When asked what he enjoyed
most about his career at DOC,
Reddish said the department
had been extremely good to
"I've always jokingly said I

than the department needs
me," said Reddish.
"I've always enjoyed the job,
and that's a big thing. I think
you have to enjoy your job and
it has kept me interested since
the beginning."
One of the biggest decisions
Reddish said he has ever had
to make during his career was
asking himself if he was willing
to make himself available
for promotions, because with
promotions, comes relocation.

"That was a personal decision
my wife and I had to make
long before the opportunity to
advance came along," he said.
Reddish said that the
moving around from facility
to facility has its advantages.
First of all, he and his family
had the opportunity to live in
different parts of the state and
experience different ways of
doing things.
"It was good for my career
as far as the advancement, but
also good for the experience
gained by working in different
institutions. I think it makes a
manager or administrator more
effective at his or her job,
paying off in future, decisions
that must be made."
Reddish said that one of
the many challenges faced
at a facility such as UCI is
that there are more than 800
employees. This is, by far,
the largest institution he has

- ..


r,. ' " [-C 4 , - '- -

Warden Barry Reddish, UCI

worked for, more than double
the number of employees he
has managed in the past.
"I take a strong interest in
my employees and the only
way to get to know the staff is
by me getting out there during
shift changes or spending time
with them at their posts so we
can get to know more about
each other," said Reddish.

Although DOC is always
looking for good people to
work for them, there is a
lapse factor taking place right
now, meaning some jobs are
available, but they are at a
What he looks for in new
recruits is someone coming
to work with the right attitude
and work ethic, someone who
is a team player.
He said the institution
may hire a high school

graduate without any formal
training or college education
and put them through the
required correctional officer
certification program, paid for
by DOC.
Those interested in along
term career as a correctional
officer may want to consider
attending local collegesuch as
Lake City Community College,
which offers a 552-hour basic
corrections recruiting course
preparing them for the state
required exam.
Those wanting to advance
their career in corrections could
look into .program offerings
such as the Correctional Officer
Academy at Santa Fe College.
The Florida Department of
Corrections offers a wide
opportunity of careers, whether
your interests are on the
security side or administrative
side of corrections.

British-developed pro-
cedure using standard
test equipment now
